An exhibition of illustration, giclée, silk-screen prints and hand-painted wooden models that interweaves work based on the natural world and the impact of humans upon it.

 

Common Lands explores themes of biodiversity, habitat destruction, migration and draws parallels between the struggles in nature and in human societies.

 

Ideal for families, this exhibition looks both at the negative – the effects of sharing a planet whose natural spaces are diminishing faster than ever - and the positive - an overall celebration of the wonder of nature and how all living beings may live together more harmoniously.

 

Ideal for families, this exhibition joins two contemporary children's book artists sharing a common interest in the natural world

 

have come together to share this creative space for celebrating, exhibiting and, most importantly, learning.
